It’s so tragic !!!
A 12-year-old boy from the Pringsewu regency in Lampung, Indonesia was severely injured after he got himself tangled in a kite.
At that time, he was swept into the air and led to multiple injuries when he fell to the ground after the string to the kite snapped, which took place at a field near a local school.
As cited News24xx.com from Tribun News, the boy is currently recovering after two surgeries following the incident.
He allegedly suffered from fractures in six places on both his arms.
The boy’s older sister, 28-year-old Acil, told that the kite was being flown by another sibling while the young boy held the string.
The kite that was being flown is a very large kite known as the ‘Layang-Layang Naga Raksasa’, or the Monster Dragon kite, and can go up to dozens of meters in height.
Following the incident, the Pringsewu Child Protection Agency (LPA) urged that children should only fly kites according to their size, as this has not been the first time a child was launched into the air.
